Warrior Gloves

I'm having trouble deciding which glove to get from Warrior which are on sale at hockey monkey.com. They have Super Mac's and Mac's for 70-80 or Fubar's for 85. Initially I was wanting the Super MacDaddy's but now I'm considering the Fubars, only thing is that they don't have 14" in Fubar...
Any input is welcome. thanks

I would recommend that if you can possibly either save up a bit more money, go for the Warrior Pro Bully gloves. Post some pics on whatever glove you decide to go with.

Was just on the Warrior website and noticed that they have a Glove Customizer. You can make your gloves to your EXACT specs. Almost too much information. They seem to be made by MIA. Pretty cool to see all the things you can do to customize them.

Super Mac Daddy's are the highest quality of the 3 gloves, IMO. If they fit you go for it.

I am also looking to get a pair of Warrior gloves. None of the stores in my area have a good selection though. Can anyone tell me how Warrior gloves compare to Eagle x70's from '07 model. I like sort of wide gloves, and am looking at getting the "Stroker" gloves off of hockeymonkey.com, but I cant find anywhere to try them on.

Any input would be appreciated.

i got each or my daughters Warrior gloves about a season ago. My personal experience is they are garbage. Both of them wore holes through the palms in no time. My youngest, a mite at the time, wore holes in hers in less than a month.

Go high end or go home IMO. Bargain Warrior stuff is absolute trash.

Only problem is that I am in New Zealand and they don't have hockey shops like they do in Canada. I can't just walk in a store and try on pairs of gloves like you would at Pro Hockey Life... Shipping will also be an arm and a leg (quoted at 70USD to ship 1 pair of gloves to NZ, 80 for 2 pairs).

Thanks, I checked out the Pro Bully's and they seems to be of higher quality then the Fubar's. Also, hockeymonkey have a much wider the selection of Pro Bully's for 14".

Yeah, I've seen that and it would be cool, but the extra cost isn't justifiable.

A buddy of mine has a new pair and I'll be trying them on tonight.

I'm a bit worried about this too. The way I hold my stick is pretty bad for the palm... Regardless of the gloves I get, I just might get a patch of leather sown onto the palm where it is most affected.

I've heard bad things about the palms on the MacDaddy's (just from reading other messageboards), and good things about the Bully's. I was going to get a pair of Bully's until I found a really good deal for NBH 4-rolls.
